Mirandes vs Villarreal
Spain – Copa del Rey
Date: Wednesday, 5 February 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Anduva (Miranda de Ebro).

Villarreal have been one of the most in-form teams in the Spanish top flight for the last several match-days.

Against a team from the lower division, they are automatically considered to be the favorites.

However, do note that Mirandes are coming into this fixture high in confidence, after eliminating Sevilla.

Mirandes vs Villarreal Prediction

Mirandes defeated Sevilla in the previous round at home, with a 3-1 scoreline. Against expectations, the former dominated throughout the game, and deserves appreciation for making the most of their opportunity.

Meanwhile, Villarreal defeated Vallecano on the road in the last round of the competition, with a 0-2 scoreline.

The Submarines were on the road, and had to wait till the 83rd minute to find the first goal of the game. Despite the resistance offered by the hosts, Villarreal did win at the end.

As things stand this Wednesday, Villarreal are easily the favorites. Not only are they from the top flight (locking horns with a lower-division team), but they are also on fine form.

In fact, they won nine of the last ten overall match-ups, and are on a seven-game winning run on the road.

On top of that, the Submarines are also on a two-match winning run against this opponent, have lost just once against this rival in the past decade, and have failed to score just once as well in the said period.

Taking these above-mentioned observations into account, we conclude that Villarreal are on course to deliver a win this match-day.

However, the fighting spirit of Mirandes was on full display against Sevilla, and they once again have the home advantage.

Not just that, in this revamped format of the Copa, lower division teams are much more fierce, and are going after wins against big teams.

Likely, despite Villarreal’s upper hand, we can expect the BTTS bet to bring returns.
